  • Neuroprotective
    • Maple syrup decreased several age-dependent phenotypes (observable characteristics) related to proteotoxicity (impairment of cell function caused by misfolding of proteins). 5
    • Could be used to treat Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) 5
    • Helps maintain neuronal integrity during aging. 5
  • Promotes Healthy Gut Bacteria. 3
    • The complex carbohydrate Inulin, contained in Maple Syrup, acts as a prebiotic and works to encourage the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. 3
  • Phenolic-enriched maple syrup extract. 2
    • Has potential as a dietary agent against diseases mediated by oxidative stress and inflammation.
    • Anti-glycation
    • Anti-oxidative (antioxidant)
    • anti-diabetic
    • anticancer
    • anti-inflammatory
    • neuroprotective
    • colon health
    • Antimicrobial activity of a phenolic-rich maple syrup extract 4
    • Strong synergistic interaction with selected antibiotics 4
